After his live freestyle where he declared he was the “Best” and mentioned WTT & C4…. Lupe drops a written freestyle via Twitter. He says some really really dope and true things on this. (Read carefully)
This is how Hip Hop is done in the two one fifth (Philly for the area code challenged)! Black Thought shreds the mic on this track. Moosh & Twist definitely hold their own on this one also. This joint is fire! Listen.
OCD: Moosh & Twist – Mathematics (Remix) feat. Black Thought
Nas – Scientist (Produced by Just Blaze & hopefully on the Lost Tapes 2)
Like every other Hip Hop fan in this world. I want to know when the infamous Lost Tapes 2 is going to drop. Nas has dropped teaser singles here and there but Hip Hop is starving for another classic. I’ve heard rumors that he’s working on an album with Preemo. I’ve heard rumors that Lost Tapes 2 was supposed to be packaged as a double cd on his next album. I’ve heard everything except some new Nas! Let’s go Nasir! Make it happen!
This one goes out to everyone who is putting in work. Jadakiss is still grinding after all these years. I’m sure he could have taken a different route but he didn’t. He is still putting out great music. Listen.
Representing Rochester NY, Kidd Called Quest (Jay Quest) is set to release his producer lp titled “Put Your Headphones On” very soon. The album will feature many talented MCs like Skyzoo, Reks, Rapper Big Pooh, Big Shug, Hassan Mackey, Joe Scudda, Blaq Poet, Chaundon, Ced Hughes, Craig G (Formally With Juice Crew) L.I.,Coach P, The Teamsterz & many more. Look out for that! Peace.

One of the benefits of writing for a Hip Hop blog is that you get tons of music sent to you via email. Most of the music isn’t really that great but once in a while I will get an email that really impresses me. This is how I felt when I opened an email from Die-Rek.
Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Die-Rek has a style reminiscent of that 90’s flavor that we at the 7th Boro appreciate so much. At the same time, his flow is modern and very well delivered. After watching the video for “Remember”, I knew I had to hear more form the Canadian MC. I found his bandcamp page and downloaded the “Die-Version Project” and I was REALLY impressed. Those of you who visit 7th Boro often know that we do not post nonsense! Check this album out, you will not be disappointed. It’s also FREE. You can download the album by clicking here or clicking on the album cover. Bless.
